Roast pears and blue cheese

This is one my favourite fall/winter desserts, its easy tasty and not too sweet. We found some beautiful red pears up at Pender Harbour and so we had to make this dessert. It is good enough to serve to company but easy enough to make mid week for the family.
Red pears and Bramley apples the best of fall fruit.

All that is required for 4 is 
3 ripe pears sliced thickly
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
2 tablespoons of butter
3 slices of blue cheese

Toss the pears with the brown sugar and put in an oven proof dish dot the butter over the top.

Ready for the oven
Put in a 350 oven for about 15 to 20 minutes until the pears are soft and the brown sugar is melted.

Break the blue cheese up into pieces and scatter over the pears put back in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese is melted.

This is good served warm with vanilla ice cream, cream or my favourite Greek yogurt. One time we served this in martini glasses and it looked and tasted quite sophisticated.
